> Notes: The musical composition (in Persian: Tasneef or Taraaneh) of the Morning Bird, aka the Dawn Bird, was written during Qajar era and it is one of the most notable Poetical Touchstones of MTB since it also portrays the present-day Iran from socio-political standpoints. The Persian version of the song can be viewed in the Poetry House of Bahar.  It should be noted that the Morgh-e Sahar was firstly sung by Iranian singers late Ghamarolmoluk-e-Vaziri, and then by late Moluk-e-Zarrabi. It was also sung by contemporary Iranian singer Mohammad Reza Shajarian in recent years.

> Lyrics:

O Morning bird, sadly sing and remind me
Of my pain afresh with a burning sigh
Break this cage and turn it upside down
Wing tied nightingale, leave the corner of this cage
Compose the song of freedom for the mankind
And with a breath, set fire to the battlefield
Of the mass of this earth
The cruelty of tyrants and the injustice of huntsmen
Have broken my nest to the winds
O God, O turning globe, O nature
Turn our dark night into dawn…
